She didn’t start writing until the age of 81 — but now she’s a published author who’s getting rave reviews! She may be a novelist, but Eugenia Lovett West’s real life story is a page-turner, too.
West met her husband, a fighter pilot, and spent an amazing 60 years with him. After he died, she decided to enter a writing contest. She lost, which might have stopped anyone else from pursuing the dream. But a publishing company looked over her murder mystery and invited her to keep writing. She did, penning a tale (then a second!) featuring Emma Streat, a daring and fashionable investigator who solves mysteries and has amazing adventures along the way.
This “queen” of the murder mystery admits that she considered hiding her age, but after realizing that her story could be an inspiration, she loudly and proudly announces that it is possible to start a new career, even in your mid-80s!
